A big thank you to all of today's walkers, joggees, runners and volunteers who chose to spend their time with us this morning. Thank you to Sytri who did a club takeover, ably assisted by 11 of our Duke of Edinburgh participants.
Today's run was abit trickier than usual with the river side of the path taken over by anglers and their vehicles. This made some sections very narrow especially around the bridge, and to the monument and back, thank you for listening to the marshals and keeping to the right side as you did those sections.
Special mention to Ollie who chose to be our Chief Motivation manager and was busy giving out high 5's to all our lovely parkrunners. Ollie will be back to be our youngest Run Director in the near future.
It was great to see Ben back for his third run with us, ably guided by James. If you are interested in Guide Running or know a VI runner please do get in touch. Sarah was back for her 21st parkrun with us. It was lovely to see octogenarian runner Ruth complete her 41st parkrun with us and we enjoyed her company back in Stop with a couple of mugs of hot chocolate.
A huge well done to all of the recent C25K who joined us again and of course thank you to RD Glenn Francke who managed the mid week sessions. We will have another group of C25k next Saturday as pupils and families join us from the Priory school, Jack Beard a pupil there and one of our DofE will be one of our Run Directors, I gave him a little practise on the loud hailer this am.
Talking of Duke of Edinburgh participants we have been very lucky over the last few years to have so many youngsters choose us for their volunteering section. It has become so popular we have had to create a waiting list. Thank you to Simon Meredith and Glenn who now act as mentors and assessors for them all.
